From the Oct. 3 ceremonial groundbreaking for the Doheny Learning 1HE DRIVE TOWARD the year 2000 and ultimate success is off to a great start. Resource Center, renamed the Sister Magdalen Coughlin Learning Complex, to an all-out voter registration effort to get 100 percent voter participation by faculty, staff and students, this promises to be an exciting fall. The College celebrated its 71st anniversary during Founders Weekend Oct. 5 and 6, leaving just four years to go to our 75th and the end of the millenium. As you know, the conclusion of the $40 million Campaign for Mount St. Mary's College will coincide with our 75th anniversary. You can take great pride in the fact that we exceeded the 1 995- 96 goal of $4,865,000. This achievement brings us to $23,400,000, or 58.5 percent of our $40 million goal. The drive toward the year 2000 and ultimate success is off to a great start. Our profound thanks go to all of you who have shown your faith in the future of MSMC by your support. You may be surprised to receive another Honor Roll this year (the first was included in the winter issue of the Mount St. Mary's College Magazine). We are changing the schedule of the magazine so that you receive the Honor Roll in a more timely manner after the College's fiscal year ends in June. We hope you agree that the change is for the better. While I'm on the subject of change, the magazine is taking the Campaign theme, Timeless Values for Changing Times, quite literally in this issue by putting a spotlight on the "Changing Times" aspect. You will see several articles about recent physical changes on the Chalon and Doheny campuses. These changes range from the major — the groundbreaking for the Sister Magdalen Coughlin Learning Complex, and Coe Library renovation, to the playful — new playground equipment at the Child Development Center. Please enjoy this mini tour of the new and improved facets of Mount St. Mary's College. Sister Karen M. Kennelly Mount St. Mary's College Magazine A major change that is not as obvious when you walk around the campuses involves new technology. Offices, classrooms and labs are becoming electronically linked together with the outside world thanks to substantial grants from the Wiegand, Keck, GTE and Parsons foundations as well as the National Science Foundation and National Institutes of Health. VoU WILL SEE several articles about recent physical changes on the Chalon and Doheny campuses. The Teagle Foundation also donated funds for curriculum development to help faculty incorporate technology in their curricula. If you tour the Chalon Campus this fall, you will see space in the Art Building that has been transformed into a technologically advanced classroom with 28 work stations. Another art classroom now has computers for computer design projects. Extensive renovation of the science labs completed this summer features numerous technological upgrades. Faculty members are already taking advantage of the new computing equipment by replacing slides with video and computer simulations. The campus is also developing a World Wide Web site on the Internet which should be up and running by the time you read this — you can visit it at http://msmc.la.edu. By January 1997, we will have newly installed telephone and data communications systems which will integrate both campuses. This year will also bring some changes of the less physical variety. After a year of gathering information and identifying priorities, the Strategic Plan Coordinating Committee met this •Mount St. Mary's CofCege Strategic Plan 1996-2001 summer to draft the College's 1996-2001 Strategic Plan. The entire campus reviewed the draft at convocation in August for submission to trustees in October. Setting direction for the next five years is one of the most important things we do as a college community. Students, faculty, staff, alumnae, trustees and regents have all been called upon to contribute. We are very grateful for the ideas shared at convocations and forums this year. The resulting Plan strongly asserts the "Timeless Values" which drive our campaign: intellectual rigor, compassionate faith, individual leadership and dedicated service. ETTING DIRECTION for the next five years is one of the most important things we do as a college community. What a joy it is to be associated with a college that believes in such values and expresses them in each and every program. How proud we can be of having a small part in this great common enterprise of making a Mount St. Mary's College education accessible to America's future leaders. Sincerely, /£ez. s&L Sister Karen M.

With newly installed electronic connections, students have access to resources near and far via on-line catalogs and CD-ROM collections. Eventually, each dorm room will be equipped with cable access to the library and its services. Plush sofas in multi-colored prints of teal blue, burgundy and gold, patterned carpeting throughout in burgundy and taupe, light-colored oak tables and chairs, improved lighting and a new air-conditioning system enhance the facility and encourage students to study in a welcoming, comfortable setting embellished by the College's collection of paintings, sculptures and fine antique furniture. Navigating through the four- story building is facilitated by a new elevator, ramps for disabled access, and redesigned stairwells. Coe Library today. Turning Coe Library in earlier days. IHE CHALON CAMPUS LIBRARY, originally dedicated May 11, 1947, was built when Sister M. Celine Coe gave the College $314,000. The money was a legacy from her father, Charles Willard Coe, for whom the library is named. The original cost for construction and furnishings was $585,000. The recent renovation, from May 1994 to June 1995, cost $4 million-plus, and was funded by gifts from foundations such as: Thomas and Dorothy Leavey, Carrie Estelle Doheny, Ahmanson, Weingart, as well as alumnae and friends of the College. "The renovated library is popular with students," says Claudia Reed, director of libraries. "According to our gate count, the number entering the library each day has doubled. The new study area on the bottom floor affords ample quiet space, and the group study areas on the second floor are used by those who prefer to combine study with discussion. Students are increasingly accessing the Internet and our expanding databases to help meet their research needs." a New Page In Our ^ History Fall 1996 MSMC ONOR ROLL OF DONORS Ellen Welch Grimmett Sharon Felker Hayden Joan Henn Margaret Sprigg Horst Arline Krause Johnston Sharon Fay Koch Sandy Freiberg Lehberg Annette LaBerge MacDonald Theresa Mangold Paula Walsh Marsden Maria Alicia Martinez Theresa Colarossi Martter Carron Vincent Maxwell Jo Ann Powers Medica Margaret Ward Montante Evelyn Villa O'Brien Mary Pat McClurg Paddock Linda McCarthy Remley Jo Bondan Roche Mary Ann Gariffo Sadler Ann Smith Sandler Patricia Myers Schaefer Dolores Schock Ann Fabian Stoffel Sylvia Norwood Taylor Josette Temple Celia Gonzales Torres Mary Lynch Tschirhart Shirley Toy Tung Marilyn Walters Carol Crawford Weidenkopf Mary Ann Whitney Charlene Rule Wilkinson Marie Zeuthen Class of 1959 Gifts: SI 3,660 Donors: 39- 41% Jean Robbie Baumann Gail Esker Bucklein Dolores Perea Caldwell Elizabeth Austin Carlin Marilyn Ball Carvin Pierangela Figini Castaneda Gloria Travaglini Chess Gloria Strangman Doran Mary Hogan Dunsford Patricia Mears Fine Carol Glanville Frampton Sally Fanning Hanton Sister Kathleen Kelly, CSJ Kathleen Halloran Koziolek Mary Grimmett Lenihan Gloria Madrid Lewis Elizabeth Matz Link Rosemary Orsini Link Kathleen Crowe Lypps Deanna Dugas Maechling Deanna Maraccini McCauley Elizabeth Navarroh Rosalie Meggiolaro O'Grady Mary Rose Pasic Mary Diaz Passafiume Gayne Harvey Pinto Antoinette Fogliani Pizzorno Helene Hudson Powers Gen Haven Rios Claire Roach Sandra Nolan Rush Chere Major Stark Mary Lou LeMaster Lhomsen Rose Herman Turner Jeanette Valentino Villalobos Mary Litjen Wade Ann Bouchard Westigard Ann Riordan Westphal Kathleen McCoy Wright Class of 1960 Gifts: S3, 140 Donors: 33 -

The room was hot and stuffy and the live cells that had been prepared for observation appeared lifeless because of the heat. Suddenly, as one of the students entered facts about the experiment into a computer, a faucet began to leak, an electrical fuse blew and the research data was lost. MB '■'//■;. PPluSS cm i ..», ~.f «£ 'tt. •"- Before this summer, the science labs were crowded and obsolete. "This and similar scenarios occurred frequently," says Sister Annette Bower, biological sciences chair. "Our laboratories were obsolete and the infrastructure was not capable of supporting the technology we currently use in our physical and biological sciences departments. In addition, there were too many students in a small space, not enough storage, and the climatic conditions were far from ideal for scientific study or for keeping technological equipment from malfunctioning." Thanks to a grant of $250,000 from the W. M. Keck Foundation to renovate and expand the biological and physical science laboratories, and a $400,000 grant from the National Science Foundation to upgrade research facilities, the Mount was able to set a major remodeling project in motion. Renovation began during summer and winter breaks in 1995 when electrical and plumbing improvements were made; safety doors and air-conditioning were installed; and the laboratories were brought up to code for fire and earthquake safety. The remaining work in the eight science labs this summer saw the installation of chemical-resistant oak cabinets, radioactive and chemical exhaust hoods, and elastomeric flooring (made of elastic material for comfort and reduction of breakage). Walls were moved to create new storage areas, a computer analysis center, rooms for laser light research, hazardous materials storage and a darkroom to develop film from protein gels for amino acid sequence studies. ^AlODERN TECHNOFOGY has become an integral part of teaching and research in the sciences," says Bower. "Students are using computers to simulate experiments, change variables, and receive analyzed results immediately. The renovation moves the whole process forward at an accelerated rate and will better enable our students to quickly access worldwide databases and gain expertise in a variety of rapidly developing molecular techniques employed in the fields of science and medicine." After the renovation, the streamlined labs have been upgraded and modernized.

While no class met that challenging goal, reunion class donations increased an average of 52 percent with participation increasing an average of 7 percent. Several classes deserve special mention: ■ Largest amount raised by one class was $26,900 from the class of '46. ■ Greatest increase in class giving was from the class of '71 which increased its 1994-95 giving of $1,020 to $5,355 in 1995-96. ■ Greatest increase in participation was a jump from j6 percent participation in 1994-95 to 47 percent in 1995-96 from the class of 1961. Nearly all reunion classes increased gifts and participation. Donations were counted until the reunion parties in October, when a member of each class presented the final totals to President Karen Kennelly.

Their playground has been magically transformed into an aesthetically pleasing, fun-promoting haven thanks to a $24,960 renovation and repair grant from the California Department of Education and other funding sources. The Doheny Child Development Center's play equipment before. "The playground needed to be brought up to the safety standards of the Americans With Disabilities Act," says Linda Crosby, Center director. Formerly characterized by aging and uninspiring equipment, the Center's play area lacked the visual appeal needed to promote and stimulate activity among the children. The comprehensive renovation plan, which took more than five years to materialize, has seen the installation of play equipment designed specifically for children's muscle coordination and motor skills development. The equipment includes a bridge, ring climber, slide, ramp and overhead ladder stand. "There are other implements, including a spiral slide, that the Center will install," says Crosby. The play equipment today strengthens muscles and is much safer. AlSO GRACING THE GROUNDS is a new garden sprouting corn, tomatoes, squash, zucchini and pumpkin which the children help plant and cultivate. "The most amazing phenomenon for the children is the metamorphosis of the seeds they plant; they always wonder how such a large vegetable could have been born from a tiny seed," says Rebecca Gayden, a teacher at the Center. In addition to assisting in the production process, the children participate in cooking activities which teaches them how different vegetables are prepared. As for the lessons learned, Gayden remarks, "A kindergartner asked why these vegetables taste better than the ones his mom buys at the store." More than 100 parents, staff and students gathered at the Center May 2 to cheer at the playground dedication ceremony when Sister Kathleen Kelly, vice president of the Doheny Campus, "cut the ribbon" and officially declared the playground open for fun. The news couldn't have been more welcomed by the children who closed the ceremony with a heartening song and dance performance that was marked by smiles of overwhelming approval.

As you may already know, our Regent kick-off event, Timeless Treasures 70th Anniversary Auction, was a big success. More than 200 of us had a great time at the Century Plaza Towers and many of us bought wonderful items we will "treasure" forever. The money we raised will assist the fine students who embody Mount St. Mary's mission. This year, for the first time, we have established a minimum annual gift for Regents of $2,500. It is our sincere hope that this move will enable us to have a dependable source of ongoing unrestricted support for the College. In addition, we hope that a financial commitment from all Regents will strengthen the ties they have to the school and enable them to assist us in the TIMELESS VALUES FOR CHANGING TIMES The Campaign for Mount St. Mary's College recruitment of new Regents and the solicitation of Campaign gifts.

There is a genuine sense of community on our campuses and in our classrooms, where the student-faculty ratio is 14 to 1. But many students who would benefit from attending Mount St. Mary's do not come, fearing that they will be overburdened by debt when they graduate. Loans and opportunity awards open the door to deserving students who are eager for the chance to attend The Mount. The prestigious President's and Future Teacher scholarships also bring an outstanding group of students to MSMC. To continue to attract the most promising and talented students, we must provide greater institutional support for financial aid — especially now, when federal and state grants have been dramatically reduced. historical ambience of the campus would be changed. The facilities will now be placed on both sides of Chester Place closer to the center of campus The Library, which will also house the Center for Cultural Fluency, will be on the east side of Chester Place between the Religious Studies Building and the Doheny Mansion. The Learning Resource Center and Academic Building will be on the west side of the street between buildings 1 and 7, The latter two buildings will house the tutoring center, counseling center, a computer room and meeting space, as well as labs, classrooms and offices for occupational therapy, associate degree in nursing and physical therapy, and the bookstore. The complex will be joined visually by an arcade across Chester Place. The changes did not increase the project cost and will maintain green space for College and civic events between the complex and the Doheny Mansion. The complex is named for Sister Magdalen Coughlin, CSJ, the president of Mount St. Mary's College from 1976 to 1989, and chancellor from 1989 until her death in 1994. She had a profound commitment to American higher education by recognizing that educational instititutions must have a vital presence among the disadvantaged youth Her vision guided the development of a multicultural college that strives to meet the needs of the ever-changing Southern California population. She helped MSMC gain recognition as one of the nation's top liberal arts colleges.

A BANNER FRIEND TO THE COLLEGE: CHARLES BANNAN ilis community involvement and generosity are legendary — qualities that Charles Francis Bannan attributes to his religiously devoted parents, his close family of nine brothers and sisters, and much hard work Born and raised in San Francisco, he attended Star of the Sea Elementary School where he was taught by and began his life-long admiration for the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet. He continued his education at St. Ignatius High School, then earned his bachelor of science degree in business at Santa Clara University in 1937. In 1940 he married Idell Forrest, and the couple raised a daughter, Toni Bannan Gross, a 1967 MSMC nursing graduate, and a son, C. Forrest Bannan, who attended Santa Clara University and Santa Clara Law School. In 1938 Bannan entered the accounting department of Pacific Gear and Tool Works, a family engineering/ manufacturing firm developed by his father, which produced precision products for use in a variety of industries. Later the company merged and eventually became Western Gear Corporation. When the almost-a- century-old business was sold in 1982, there were approximately 3,000 employees, and plants in five states in the United States, and in Belgium, Ireland and Germany. During his career, Bannan held several positions in the firm and retired as vice chairman. He was the first president of Pacific Western Foundation organized by Western Gear to oversee all the charitable functions of the corporation. The single largest individual donor to the College, he served as a member of the MSMC Board of Trustees from 1982 to 1993 and is currently a Trustee Emeriti. He has been a member of the College's Regents Council since 1977, was the founding chair of the College's investment committee and is a lifetime member of the Mount Associates, as is his daughter Toni and her husband, Steven Gross. "I met Sister Magdalen Coughlin in the early '70s, and we had a long conversation about her vision of the College," says Bannan. "She became a very dear friend and I always enjoyed working with her." The longtime Downey resident was the first West Coast president of Junior Achievement and responsible for its expansion in Southern California. He has consistently supported the Little Sisters of the Poor in San Pedro, has served as a board member of the regents at Santa Clara University,- the Los Angeles Council of Boys Scouts of America,- Paulist Productions, St. Vincent de Paul Society,- and the president's councils of Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles and St. Thomas Aquinas College in Santa Paula. He holds honors as a Knight of Malta and a Knight of St. Gregory. In 1993 he was honored by Cardinal Roger M. Mahony at the Cardinal's annual award and recognition dinner. 4* Charles Bannan "Charles Bannan is a sweet, gentle, quiet human being who is truly dedicated to education," says Sister Kathleen Kelly, vice president for the Doheny Campus. "He believes in the mission of the College and has been a very active trustee who is not afraid to take risks. His financial planning has helped to direct and educate us, and his guidance is very much appreciated." In 1984 when Our Lady of Mercy Chapel was built on the Doheny Campus, Bannan donated the altar and an entire window wall in memory of both his and his wife's Campaign Update FALL 1996 parents. In gratitude for his kindness, the College created a contemplative garden area in front of the chapel and named it "Bannan Court." A few years later, when the Bannans celebrated their golden wedding anniversary, the liturgy was held in the chapel. "Whether he is attending our College fundraisers or Mount Associate events, donating to our scholarship or building funds, offering his expert advice, recruiting new members to the Regents Council or sending the Sisters avocados, Charles Bannan has been a loyal, staunch, wonderlul friend of Mount St. Mary's College," says Sister Kathleen.

The area was enclosed in summer 1995 and transformed into a park- like plaza that serves as a communal area for students, staff and faculty. "Having cars parked in this area became a problem. There was no way to remove cars in time for last- minute events that were held in the Circle," says De The Circle today invites study, relaxation and socialization. The Circle at Chalon served as a circular parking lot before 1995. Vere Claus, supervisor of transportation at the Chalon Campus. The circular parking lot was also tainted with oil and rubber 1 stains, making clean-up for last-minute events overwhelming. Another reason for enclosing the area had to do with its physical appearance. "A lot of people felt that the Circle divided the campus," says Claus. In fact, prior to its transformation, the opposite ends of the campus were often referred to as the "north and south ends. By making the Circle a place to relax with benches and proper lighting, the campus seems to have a more cohesive appearance," he says. With its Victorian lightposts and wrought iron and wood benches, chosen to match the campus' Spanish Gothic architecture, the Circle has become the defining central point of the Chalon Campus. What used to be a busy circular road is now a peaceful stretch of beauty that beckons activity and relaxation.

Sale Fall 1996 23 New Life For a Faded Beauty: he Renovation of Building 20 at Doheny F OR MORE THAN 70 YEARS, even before the Doheny estate became Mount St. Mary's College, everyone called the 1902 shingle style, craftsman home on St. James Place the "Seaver House," or simply "number 20." Purchased by the Doheny family circa 1912, the house was rented to Mr. Doheny's business associate, the inventor of the Hydril oil drill (still in use today), Frank Roger Seaver and his wife, Blanche Ebert Seaver. The house became available for the College's use when Mrs. Seaver died in 1994. "It was just after the Northridge earthquake, and the entire structure needed to be strengthened and brought up to code and safety standards," says Sister Edward Mary Zerwekh, who was director of plant operations for the Doheny Campus. "The inside walls were either replaced or reinforced, the house was re-wired, a new heating and air-conditioning system was installed, a fire- escape was added, and the outside of the house was painted in rose-colored hues. The restoration was financed by the Doheny Foundation and the College's earthquake insurance. The interior boasts freshly painted white walls and forest green carpet for the new offices of the education department, and provides a temporary setting for the Center for Cultural Fluency, which will eventually move to the second floor of the soon-to-be-built Sister Magdalen Coughlin Learning Complex. An oak stairway leads upstairs where nine students and a residence life assistant reside in seven spacious bedrooms. The Education Department has made its home in the Seaver House. ann The Seaver House parlor and dining room were transformed into offices for the Education Department and Center for ( Cultural Fluency. 1 HE WARM, FAMILY ATMOSPHERE of this house sets a tone for the education programs and makes a positive impression the moment one enters," says Dr. Nancy Pine, director of elementary education. "The large rooms create a natural setting for collaboration, but there are also many quiet corners for private conferences, work and study. Being in this house has had a substantive impact on teaching and learning in the education department and it has provided the department with a sense of identity for students." Designed by Frank D. Hudson and William A. Munsell, who also designed the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County at Exposition Park and the former Hall of Records Building in Downtown Los Angeles, the newly renovated residence radiates with the vitality and beauty of its earlier life.

Mount St. Mary's College wishes to thank 1996 Outstanding Alumnae Victoria Chaney, Thelma Buchholdt and Jane Johnson for the time, energy, spirit and love they have given to their alma mater, their professions and their communities. The following tributes to each honoree by their peers will give you a good idea of why these three women are worthy of this honor. Outstanding alumna for professional achievement Victoria Chaney '67 Superior Court Judge Victoria Chaney, class of 1967, has a poster on the wall of her chambers with these words in large print "Do the Impossible!" In smaller print around the edges you can find the following: Find a Needle in a Haystack! Turn a Sow's Ear into a Silk Purse! Pass a Camel Through the Eye of a Needle! Spin Straw into Gold! These sayings express the energy, dedication and determination Chaney brings to her life. "In May 1994, Chaney was elevated to the Los Angeles Superior Court by Gov. Pete Wilson." After graduating with a nursing degree, she found her greatest satisfaction in working with chronically and terminally ill children and their families. Her upbeat can-do attitude led her to Loyola Law School, to private practice as an attorney, to deputy city attorney and to trial attorney with supervisory responsibility for defending the City of Los Angeles and its employees in police, paramedic and medical malpractice cases. In 1985 she was named "Trial Attorney of the Year;" in 1990 Gov. George Deukmejian appointed her a municipal court judge for the L.A. Judicial District; and in 1993 she was named supervising judge at the Metropolitan Branch. In May 1994, Chaney was elevated to the Los Angeles Superior Court by Gov. Pete Wilson. She continues in this position hearing criminal cases. How did she move from being a Mount graduate to a Superior Court judge? She credits much of her success to the nurturing and encouragement she received as a Mount student. She believes the Mount provided a safe but stimulating environment during the turbulent '60s and gave her a well-rounded education while allowing her to mature at her own rate. She feels that the smaller world of the Mount showed her the importance of a sense of community, a feeling of belonging. It helped her learn to trust in her ability to meet the challenges of her life with courage and confidence. Victoria Chaney '67 She became a pioneer for women as she repeatedly demonstrated her ability to take her place in higher and higher positions of responsibility. She believes her experiences at the Mount helped her gain insight and sensitivity in working with people from many different backgrounds. She learned the need to respect the individuality of others while still helping them in her professional roles as nurse, attorney and judge. From the many Sisters and professors who became her role models, she learned the importance of patience and the necessity of humility in dealing with others. It is now her turn to be an inspiring role model to the students and graduates of the Mount. "Do the impossible!" — Bernice Brady Med inn is '43 Fall 1996 29 Outstanding alumna award for service to the college Jane Luecke Johnson '64 Jane Luecke Johnson has a gentle and powerful way of earing and connecting and it makes a lot of sense to me, her friend of 36 years, that she should be the recipient of the Outstanding Alumna Award for Service to Mount St. Mary's College. Remembering Jane, my first thought of her during our first years together at Mount St. Mary's is of her sense of personal style. From the perfection of her starched Peter Pan collar to her voice — low and generous and amused, like an intelligent song — Jane was the first friend I ever knew to wear driving gloves in the cool California mornings and she wrote fine poetry. She seemed the ultimate in sophistication. Both Jane and I taught several years for the Los Angeles city schools (including specializing in the teaching of gifted children); she often shared her masterful teaching materials with me without making a show of it. Our career paths divided when we both left the field — Jane received her law degree in 1980. Jane is active in the Los Angeles Bar Association and has served as chair of the Litigation Section. Her other legal activities include serving as Judge Pro Tern in the municipal and small claims courts and as a settlement officer and mediator for the Los Angeles Superior Court. She practices law with the firm of Johnson & Johnson Professional Law Corporation. "She was recently appointed as the first alumna representative on the MSMC Board of Trustees. " It's no surprise that she maintained a vital connection with the Mount. She has been a member of the College Trustees' Committee on Student Life since 1987. In addition, she served as Alumnae Fund Drive director and president of the Alumnae Association. She is currently a member of the Advisory Committee for Planned Giving as well as the Committee of Attorneys for Planned Giving. She was recently appointed as the first alumna representative on the MSMC Board of Trustees. Jane Luecke Johnson '64 The psychologist Jean Baker Miller writes about personal power as the ability to develop one's abilities in the context of self support and the support of others. In other words, she's looking at power in an untraditional way. This is not the kind of power associated with controlling or dominating others. Jane Johnson has always been a highly effective person in a multitude of roles. In this way she has a handle on the traditional, still male-dominated bases of power. What I pay highest homage to, however, is the elegance in her power to care and to connect with me, as well as to her husband, Hugh, her daughter and son, Hillary and Eric, and the community at large. You've been a model, dear Jane. — Virginia Speltz Miillm '64 is a psychologist living and working in West Los Angeles. 30 Mount St. Mary's College Magcninc Outstanding alumna award for community service Thelma Garcia Buchholdt '56 Thelma Garcia Buchholdt is the embodiment of the phrase "think globally, act locally." Since graduating from Mount St. Mary's in 1956 with a zoology degree, she has served in the Alaska state legislature, spoken at a United Nations conference in Kenya and founded the Asian Alaskan Cultural Center, among many other achievements. Her work has had a dramatic impact on women and minorities and it is because of this that she is the recipient of the Outstanding Alumna Award for Community Service at MSMC. A native of Claveria, Cagayan, the Philippines, Thelma was among the early vanguard of post-World War II students from Asia to attend college in California. After she earned her bachelor's degree from MSMC, she moved to Alaska in 1965 with her husband, Jon, and there they raised their children Titania, Christopher, Hans and Dylan. Thelma became active as a community organizer and volunteer, which led her to local and statewide political action. She served four terms in the Alaska State House, representing her Anchorage District from 1974 to 1982. She became known as a champion of the causes of women and minorities. She also sponsored projects concerned with education, economic development, natural resources and human services. When Gov. Tony Knowles named her director of the state Office of Equal Employment Opportunity in August 1995, he cited her decades-long tireless work on behalf of diverse groups and people in Alaska. In this position, she ensures that the state's executive branch, more than 14,000 employees, complies with state and federal equal employment opportunity laws. She was recognized for her work on behalf of women and invited Thelma Garcia Buchholdt '56 to speak at Forum '85, the United Nations Decade for Women Conference in Nairobi, Kenya. Thelma was the first native of the Philippines elected to serve in a state legislature on the mainland and the first Filipina elected to a state legislature in the U.S. As the founder and president of the Asian Alaskan Cultural Center, and a trustee of the Filipino American National Historical Society, she has contributed to the self-empowerment of forgotten communities of Filipino Americans and to national awareness of the contributions of Filipino Americans to American society. Currently, she is completing research on the Filipino history in Alaska from 1788 to 1958. "Gov. Tony Knowles . . . cited her decades-long tireless work on behalf of diverse groups In addition to her wide range of accomplishments, Thelma has been co-owner of a consulting business in Alaska which specializes in communication, community organization and budget planning, and has led her to travel to many world areas. To expand her knowledge base, she earned a law degree from the District of Columbia School of Law in 1991 and as an attorney she has represented clients on a pro bono basis assigned to her by the Alaska Bar Association and the Alaska Legal Services Corporation. She continues to serve as a resource person on advisory committees which benefit a wide range of concerns including children's programs, the cultural resources of Alaska, and local and statewide political organization activities. Thelma recalls the words of an outdoor play performed in front of Mary Chapel which have inspired her throughout life to do her best: "Play your part well, God sees all." The many honors she has received give recognition to the embodiment of these ideals notably in community network building, leadership and dedicated service. — Lucy Cohen, Ph.D. '56 Fall 1996 31 Classics 39 Frances Dutra Cutler visited Fatima and Lourdes last year, and is traveling to Illinois, Arkansas, Washington and Idaho this year to visit family and friends. 46 Last year Mary Needels Block and her husband traveled to the Canadian Northwest Territories, visiting government offices m Yellowknife and many native villages.

Fall 1996 33 Mount Associates: An Arena of Growth for New Alumnae While in college, students are in a continual state of intellectual and social growth as they experience people and ideas that differ from the familiar. However, new graduates are faced with the challenge of career and J personal advancement, without always knowing how to accomplish them. The Mount Associates provide an excellent arena of growth for young alumnae through the social events offered throughout the year. Mount Associates receptions and dinners allow alums to interact with some of the most interesting people in the Los Angeles area. Associates and their guests are of diverse backgrounds and the new graduate member may find herself talking with the head of her own law firm, a corporate vice president, the chair of an academic nursing department, or even a retired astronaut. People love to share their experiences and ideas, and Mount Associates are no exception. Membership in the Mount Associates also provides the opportunity (and the motivation) to experience the rich culture of Los Angeles. Associates are often among the first to tour a new museum, taste the cuisine of a celebrated local chef, and enjoy Da Camera Society concerts in historic sites. Mount Associates also gives alums the opportunity to give something back. Their donations provide Mount St. Mary's College with unrestricted funds that support such areas as student financial aid, academic programs, and operational budget relief. So, while enjoying all that being a Mount Associate has to offer, members are supporting women's education. In order to make membership more financially accessible to new alumnae, there is a graduated minimum donation, $300 annually for alumnae through age 29, $600 annually for ages 30 to 34, and $1,200 annually for those 35 years and older. For those who would like a closer look at the Associates before joining, the fall event will take place Nov. 17 at the new Museum of Television and Radio. Call Theresa Davis, director of Annual Giving at (310) 471-9807 for more information about the event or the Associates.

J 4 Mount St. Mary's College Magazine Generations of Quiet Philanthropy Although colleges usually receive their greatest support from their alumni, there are always exceptions. For Mount St. Mary' s College, Joan Palevsky is one of these exceptions because, while not an alumna, she is a charter member of the Heritage Society. The Society, founded in 1992, honors and thanks people who remember MSMC in their wills, trusts, annuities, insurance policies, retirement funds, private foundations, or through an endowed scholarship fund. Why does a non-alum care so deeply about the Mount? "My deep commitment to MSMC — and to higher education in general — is based on the fine educational programs the College offers to students. Although I am not an alumna, I admire very much what is going on there." Palevsky's motivation for philanthropy began very early. Her mother "always gave a little to certain causes, including the support of a child in India," which Palevsky continued after her mother's death. Having earned a B.A. in romance languages at U.C.L.A. and an M.A. in French at the University of Wisconsin, she taught literature for many years at U.C.L.A. In 1988 she was chosen U.C.L.A.'s Alumnus of the Year for "quietly helping to put education first," according to the UCLA Monthly. She often gives support and contributions anonymously. "Mainly I've wanted to honor other people whom I thought ought to be honored," she says. She has been particularly generous in providing funds for scholarships, faculty endowed chairs, and various types of assistance for women. Beginning in the late '70s Palevsky became acquainted with Mount St. Mary's College and has been very close ever since. She was particularly fond of Sister Magdalen Coughlin and at Sister's death she wrote, "She was unforgettable, so good and so lovable. It was a comfort to know she existed." Through the years Palevsky's support of MSMC has included generous contributions for the President's Endowed Scholarship Fund (which will be further enhanced through a bequest in her will), Yates House — a faculty residence named in honor of her mother, the Da Camera Society, and various educational programs. Her dedication to the Mount just proves that it doesn't take a degree to instill devotion to an institution, it merely takes a distinctive mission that others embrace. Palevsky's contributions will be appreciated for decades to come by hundreds of students who share her vision. Sister Catherine Therese Knoop Director of Planned Giving (310) 471-9896 In early September a fence was installed around the perimeter of the new Sister Magdalen Coughlin Complex site on the Doheny Campus. The site is adjacent to the Doheny Mansion at left and Building 7, background, which houses student services. Fall 1996 35 MSMC Rated One Of The Best In The West Only two years ago the Carnegie Commission moved Mount St. Mary's from the category of regional liberal arts college to that of regional university and already the College has proven its ability to fare well among its fellow big leaguers. The Mount was rated one of the top regional universities in the West in U.S. News & World Report's 10th annual "America's Best Colleges" issue published Sept. 16, and one of the best college values in the Sept. 23 U.S. News issue. Mount St. Mary's was rated twelfth among the best regional universities in the West. To arrive at the 1996-97 rankings, U.S. News & World Report evaluated about 500 universities in this category. The rating is based on an analysis of several criteria, including the excellence of academic programs and faculty, admission standards, retention rate and alumni giving. Mount St. Mary's also rated eighth among national universities in the West in the U.S. News best values — discount prices category. This category is determined by taking the average college costs per student and subtracting the average financial aid award. SHE'S A DOCTOR TODAY BECAUSE HER ROLE MODELS WEREN'T MODELS.

The print ads and commercials have been published in national magazines/ newspapers and have aired on television stations since November 1995.

Parents and teachers who call (800) WCC-4-GIRLS receive brochures and booklets to help them support girls in this way. Girls need to understand that their school life, career choices and achievements need have no limitations based on gender.
